What games do you most like to play? What games have you played lately?

Merchants & Marauders, Trajan, Dominion, Smallworld, lighter games, party games, etc. I'll play anything and seem to have a wide taste compared to a lot of gamers I've met.

How often do you like to play board games?

Several times a week if I can, but I don't seem to play as often as many of the gamers I've met.

What can your game group do for you? Also, what can YOU do you for your game group? Can you teach any games? Which ones?

I'm just looking for more people to share the hobby with. So far I've found that my tastes aren't always in alignment with the gamer tropes I've encountered thus far, so I'd like to meet more people. I'd be happy to teach games, but only do so when I'm very comfortable with a game as I take teaching quite seriously (in a lighthearted, fun, serious way of course!)

Do you have a particular style of play? If so, please describe it.

I seem to like the social aspects of gaming more than many of the players I've met. Though I do love deep Euros that can be largely multiplayer solitaire. I love the meta-game that can arise from good games... the stuff that happens when mechanisms converge... the stuff that isn't always stated in the rule book.

Do you visit boardgamegeek.com? Brettspielwelt.com? What is your username?
